6. Oklahoma
7. Boston College
8. Iowa
9. Kentucky
10. Memphis
11. Illinois
12. Michigan State
13. Florida
14. Louisville
15. Indiana

21. Maryland
22. Nevada
23. Wake Forest
24. Alabama
25. Ohio State

Just a few general comments: I elevated Connecticut to the top spot due to their two wins over top 10 teams. When Marcus Williams returns to this team on January 3, they are going to be scary good. I kept Texas above Duke because they have played two top-20 teams to Duke's 1. Despite their loss to Connecticut, I was very impressed with Gonzaga so I moved them up. I almost put them ahead of Villanova, but the Wildcats did have two blowout wins. We'll see who's for real in their matchup this week with Oklahoma. Iowa moved up following an impressive win over Kentucky and a near miss against Texas.

I still believe Michigan State is a top-ten team, but their performance in Hawaii left me no choice but to place them outside it. I dropped Illinois one spot due to close wins over Wichita State and Texas Pan-American. Florida has had several impressive wins, so they debut at #13 and so far I've been right about Arizona. Washington moved up, mostly because everyone else fell off, but will have a lot to prove in their first real test against Gonzaga this week. UCLA is going to have to beat somebody to stay in the top 25. The last six are a complete crap-shoot.
